By using a voting system where lying *doesn't* give B an edge. Got the idea yet?

In a pure Condorcet system with a default option, lying about the acceptability of A *doesn't* help B. In a system with your 'quorum', it can help B. In a system using cloneproof SSD for tie resolution, it can help B (but only when there isn't a Condorcet/"Ideal Democratic" winner).
